The NSW Gay and Lesbian Rights Lobby (GLRL) and ACON will hold a mass planting of pink hearts to mark the one-year anniversary of the federal same-sex marriage ban this month.

The planting, scheduled for 13 August in Victoria Park, will symbolise the push for full relationship equality for lesbians and gay men, the groups said this week.

The event will run from 10:30am to 12:30pm and will include stage entertainment and a community brunch.

We will be planting pink hearts to show that our relationships with each other, and with our children, are equal and deserve full legal equality, Lobby co-convenor Julie McConnell said.

The Lobby’s announcement follows the group’s withdrawal last week from a National Day of Action rally also scheduled for 13 August, from 1pm.

The Lobby said the relationships rally, which has the support of various LGBT groups, misrepresented the Lobby’s position and undermined what it stood for.
